This weekend I upgraded from 11d to 12d on my current servers. I then installed remote agent on a new server (HP DL380 G5, Windows 2003 R2 ADvanced, 16GB RAM). Te remote agent service would not start. I rebooted a number of times. It wouldn't allow me to remove the software (because service was attempting to start) so I set the service to manual, rebooted and removed the remote agent (add/remove on local console).
I rebooted and tried to install it again with the same results. The service attmepts to start and sits there. I came back after 4 hours and it finally failed, but the service manager still showed it trying to start.
Any suggestions? I might try to re-download the software hoping it was a bad installer.
I just tried to remove it again, and got a new error:
Error Applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid.
Please let me know what to try.
